Go Pink4Blue’s Breast Cancer Fight!

32220014_1534639093679387_r.jpegOn Monday, July 16, 2018, I received a call at work stating that my mammogram came back abnormal. I had been diagnosed with stage 1 invasive breast cancer, which quickly turned into stage 2 by my next appointment. Initially I thought the surgery would be later this year, but unfortunately the cancer is moving rapidly and I will be having a double mastectomy before the end of August 2019. It went from possibly having surgery to NEEDING to have surgery. After the procedure I will being chemo therapy. 

As a single mother with one son in college and another one just entering high school, never did I expect to have these medical bills on top of taking care of my family. I have been working everyday up until just having received my surgery date (which is in two weeks) so I will have to take medical leave soon. This is extremely hard on me be it that I am the primary provider for my family. 

Last year I walked in the Jacksonville Sista Strut in honor of my grandmother, Helen. Who would have ever thought I would become the one needing support in a fight against breast cancer. 

I appreciate all the love, thoughts, prayers and well wishes as I begin this journey to fight breast cancer.  Please  feel free to post any words of encouragement on my Facebook page.

Sincerely, 
Monique Woodlon Blue
